Anyone use hot rollers? I’m looking to replace the set my mom gave me back in 1999, and I have no idea what to get. Any suggestions? My old set are Conair and take forever to heat up. I’d love something quick heating, and with a bunch of different sized rollers. And probably more then my current set, which as 12 and takes two sets for me to do my hair.
And i’d love to see photos of your hair done in hot rollers!

@Lepidoptera: awesome thank you! What style of clips do they come with? I have spent so much time trying to find the right clips, and I’m currently using pins to hold it, as I get dents when I use clips! If it comes with more pins then I’d be super happy haha

Probably showing my age here, as the entire world seems to use a flat iron on their hair now, but I am 54 and use two entire sets of Conair Big Curls rollers every. single. morning. They are the peachy colored ones and all the same size, but they have the volume I need without tight curls. I am not having any luck posting a photo – sorry!

@cirk: how long is your hair and what kind of curls do you want? I have a nice babyliss set that does tight(er) curls. But i want this set so I have bigger, looser curls.
I also just recieved this set from my fiance’s reward points– havent tried it yet! 🙂
ETA: they all come with those crappy metal clip things– i use the “butterfly/Clasp” things that i have purchased seperately

I have naturally curly hair that I usually wear one of three ways: 1) air dried, naturally curly, 2) blow dried and straightened with a flat iron, or 3) blow dried and set in large, hot rollers to provide smoothness, shine and direction. If I just blow dry my hair and do not set or straighten it, it looks unruly and fuzzy. (When I allow it to air dry, sometimes, in the interest of time, I have to help the process along with a hair dryer and a diffuser, but I don’t usually like the result nearly as much as wearing it one of the other three ways.)
When I use hot rollers, I use 1.5 sets of Conair rollers (17 rollers total) that are split in the center to allow for a more rapid heating time. I hold them in place with plastic clips with many very narrow “teeth” I have an older set of 12 rollers and a newer set with five. The latter set I purchased from Target.

I also use Babyliss hot rollers. Love them!
I have naturally curly/wavy hair. I tend to let it do its own thing for daily style, but when I’m dressing up/for special occasions, I usually use hot rollers or my curling wand. I have a flat iron but I’ve decided to stop fighting my hair’s natural wave and just embrace it. 🙂
